msnbc mike barnicle. howard dean, and former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner, stranger. >> long time, no see. >> you're always here. >> you're never here. >> we're globe trotting, what can i say? hi, willie. >> what was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fascinating. the debate was last night and we have fascinating clips of that. and also the look at preparations of the presidential debates a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of forme
's extremely difficult if not impossible for anyone to win statewide -- >> guest: steve, i disagree with that analysis. abraham lincoln was a third party in 1860. in 1856, you had the democratic party and the wig -- and abraham lincoln wasn't on the ballot in a number of states, particularly in the south, yet he won the election. he didn't win a majority of the popular vote, he won the majority of the electoral vote and in 1832, i would submit that there were two parties there and it was henry clay and andrew jackson and jackson won the overwhelming popular vote. back in 1824, there was certainly several different parties running and then, of course, john quincy adams won that race and that was -- you had at least three, maybe four, parties then. host: but even -- >> guest guest the electoral votes. host: but even if you take it to more recent campaigns, 1968, the caller referring to george wallace did get 46 electoral votes but didn't get close to winning the presidency, ross perot, '92 and '96, getting nearly 20 percent of the vote in '92 but not one electoral vote. guest: he got
is finally getting a second shot even if for just one night. steve harrigan is live outside the miami marlins' ballpark. steve? >> reporter: gregg, a remarkable comeback story we're likely to see unfold tonight. seven years ago adam greenberg was a 24-year-old outfielder for the cubs. on the first pitch of his first major league at bat he was struck by a fast ball traveling at 92 miles an hour. he was hit just under the helmet in the back of the head. here's how adam described that plow. >> turned to get out of the way, but unfortunately, i didn't get out of the way enough, and it caught right up under my helmet, so it made direct contact with my skull, and i felt like my head split open. grabbed my head immediately, i thought i was holding it together because it really felt like it submit, and i was just -- split, and i was just pretty scared. >> reporter: for some time after that, adam suffered double vision, he was sent down to the minors and struggled there for some time in the minor leagues. now tonight he gets his shot back with the miami marlins. he signed a one-day contract, and reall
